    导出博客文章Phil Taylor is relishing his Premier League clash with Gary Anderson after
    admitting he received a kick up the backside. The six-time champion started his
    campaign with a lacklustre defeat against the Dutchman, but averaged 111 in a
    vintage 7-1 win over James Wade on night two of the competition in
    Newcastle.Taylor will next face defending champion Anderson on Thursday night in
    Dublin, live on Sky Sports, and believes he is firmly back on track after being
    stung into life by the Van Barneveld loss. The defeat against Raymond was a kick
    up the backside that I needed, but last week was a fantastic result for me and I
    want to keep pushing forward now, said Taylor.Its going to be brilliant and Gary
    will be ready for it. Ive been doing everything right and its just a matter of
    getting up there and doing it on the dartboard.Now that Im playing properly and
    Ive got my equipment right, I cant wait and Im really looking forward to
    it.Michael van Gerwen also ended with a 111 average after last weeks dazzling
    7-3 win over Anderson and takes on Adrian Lewis, the early league leader, at the
    3Arena. Michael van Gerwen hopes to display his ice-cool finishing in Dublin The
    world No 1 had a 70 per cent success rate on the doubles against Anderson and
    plans to ruthlessly punish any lapses of concentration from Lewis. The crowds
    in Dublin are great and I really like to play there, said Van Gerwen. It will be
    a good game and I hope I can continue my form because my confidence is high at
    the moment and I know what I can do.Adrian is a fantastic talent but sometimes
    he can let his focus go a little bit and then you need to take advantage, and
    thats what Ill be looking to do. Hopefully well both have won two out of three
    by the end of the night!But Lewis is in confident mood after adding his second
    win of the competition against Dave Chisnall. Michael has been the best player
    in the world for the last couple of years in my opinion, said Lewis. It means
    everything when you play him and Im looking forward to it. Lewis leads by
    example Adrian Lewis showing promise in Premier League I cant ask for any more
    with my form and that showed in patches last week. Im feeling good and if
    somebody beats me then theyre going to have to play really well.Watch night

    Leicesters fairytale year continued after it was ranked as the UKs Greatest
    Sporting City for 2016, according to research from ESPN and the University of
    Bath.Propelled by a historic Premier League title for Leicester City FC, the
    city beat the likes of London and Manchester to the award after it scored highly
    in the most of the 12 factors fans were asked to identify as key to a great
    sporting city.The city climbed 17 places from 18th last year and earned a
    maximum score in five factors -- success, matchday atmosphere, local talent,
    community and social.Leicester City captain Wes Morgan said: Its hard to explain
    exactly what impact last season had on this city but just by walking around the
    streets you can see theres blue in almost every shop window, which just goes to
    show the support the people of Leicester have given to us.To see 250,000 people
    turn out for our Premier League trophy parade was a moment I and every person
    there will never forget and I know the pride the people of Leicester showed at
    our title win extends across the citys rugby, cricket and basketball teams
    too.Here at the football club, I know there are lads who regularly attend Tigers
    games and we often see players from the Foxes and Riders at King Power Stadium,
    which shows what a brilliant sporting city this is.Im involved in a tattoo shop
    in the city centre and since we won the league Id say around 70 per cent of the
    tattoos we do are LCFC-themed. That underlines just how much the people of
    Leicester love sport and their teams, so its great to see the city recognised
    for that.Leicester is followed in the rankings by 2015s top two -- Manchester
    dropping from first to second and London from second to third. Liverpool in
    fourth and Leeds in fifth rounds out the top five.At the other end of the table,
    Blackpool ranked bottom for the second year in a row, behind York in 48th, Luton
    in 47th and Bournemouth in 46th. Full results for the research, conducted in
    collaboration with the University Bath, are available here.Leicesters City mayor
    Sir Peter Soulsby said: Leicester Citys success last season has given the whole
    city a huge boost, and that positivity is clearly reflected in this research.
    Were obviously enormously proud of our football club, but Leicester is also home
    to one of Englands most successful rugby clubs, the countrys oldest basketball
    club, an ambitious cricket club, and a very successful womens hockey club.I
    think its fair to say that, when it comes to sport, Leicester -- a city of just
    330,000 people -- enjoys punching above its weight. Being recognised as the best
    place in the country to be a fan is a huge accolade, so I am delighted that
    ESPNs research has confirmed Leicester as the UKs Greatest Sporting City.This
    year, ESPN also divided the research into individdual sports to reveal the best
    places to be a fan of football, cricket, rugby union and rugby
    league.dddddddddddd. On the back of Leicester Citys historic title-winning
    season, Leicester received the accolade of the best city to be a football fan.
    Leeds ranked as the best city for both cricket and rugby league fans, while
    Cardiff is the top town for rugby union lovers.Leicester Tigers director of
    rugby Richard Cockerill said: This has always been a sporting city, with great
    local support for all of our teams and sportspeople, and it is good to see that
    status earning recognition from a wider audience.Our neighbours at Leicester
    City have obviously enjoyed a memorable year and all of the citys sports have
    been extremely proud of each others achievements in representing this part of
    the country in major competitions in the UK and further afield.At Tigers, we
    have enjoyed consistent success over very many years backed by a very committed
    and loyal support. It is always our ambition to be at the forefront of our sport
    while also recognising and cheering the successes for our teams and sportspeople
    across the county.Wasim Khan, CEO, Leicestershire County Cricket Club, added:
    The recent successes of Leicester City FC, coupled with the significant progress
    made by Leicester Tigers and the Cricket Club, further illustrates the heritage
    and pedigree of sport in the city. The sporting family in Leicester has some of
    the most passionate and loyal collective fans in the country and this
    recognition is for them as much as the clubs themselves.As part of the research,
    ESPN asked fans to rank 12 factors that help make up a great sporting city, in
    order to provide weightings for each citys results. This year, fans ranked Value
    for Money as the most important factor, as it received 19% of the vote. A citys
    Matchday Atmosphere was ranked by 17% of fans as the most important, while Club
    Success for a citys professional teams received 15% of the votes.Commenting on
    the research, Professor Thomas Curran, University of Bath, said: It is not easy
    to earn the accolade of ESPNs Greatest Sporting City, so the city of Leicester
    deserves all the congratulations it receives. To rank highly, a city must
    perform well in a variety of key factors which rely on a combination of fan
    opinion and third party data. To score top marks in five factors is a great
    achievement.Steven Saunders, Senior Editor of, said: Leicester
    topping the rankings as ESPNs Greatest Sporting City 2016 is another amazing
    achievement for the city, especially considering the traditional sporting
    powerhouses such as London and Manchester that it has beaten to the top spot. '
